I bought this book because I was looking for new ways to incorporate Yule into our family celebrations. My children are getting older (leaving toddlerhood) and only in the last couple of years have we started celebrating the Pagan holidays together as a Pagan family (I was in the broom closet for 10 years).
This book gave us lots of ideas on how we can merge Yule and the commercial X-Mas season together without making it too "weird" for the kids and changing everything they are used to. It was neat to see how many things we already do traditionally that was covered in this book. This book gave us lots of neat craft and activity ideas that we can do as a family...and ideas on how to celebrate with the non-Pagan family as well!!
I highly recommend this book to Pagan parents or young Pagan families.
At first glance, I thought this book would be helpful when I spied it on the bookshelf at my local bookstore. However, when I opened it to the introductory chapter I learned that the culture which gave the name Yule (the Norse) where not even mentioned...at all. I finally found a blurb about them in the paragraph on mistletoe. But the story pertaining to mistletoe and the god Balder was completely wrong. All in all, when I flipped through the rest of the book, I found that if I did about a week's research online and in a few books, I could've done a better job with this than she did.
